Cloud : what difference between site-Admin, Admin and JIRA-Admin ? Edited

Hello

I searched and checked this out :
https://confluence.atlassian.com/cloud/manage-groups-744721627.html?_ga=2.98598750.1971691628.1506893560-1149726608.1504687600

 

which defines what is site-admin, but many points remains unclear :

- is site-admin = JIRA System Administrators ?

- what can do an Admin and a JIRA-Admin ?

- what is the reason to be of each, and what are the differences ?

- The client has Confluence and JIRA site : JIRA-admin here does mean as well Confluence-admin ?

Regards

Site-admins are able to maintain the Cloud site - mostly users, which are shared across the applications that make up the sie.

Jira administrators look after Jira - fields, screens, workflows, projects, permissions and so-on.  Confluence administrators look after Confluence at a similar level.

You can change the permissions in each application if you want, granting extra admin rights - one of our clients created an "atlas admin" group and granted it Jira, Bitbucket and Confluence admin inside the applications, so they had a really simple way to say "these people are admins for the whole stack".

You don't get System administration on Cloud, only Atlassian support have that access.

Using Trello to manage events
